Firestorm Situation Report 

Comrade Stalin,

We have received your orders to begin Firestorm - Bagration!

Our assault on the fascists will have two broad aims; we must strike at the fortified cities of Vitebsk, Orsha, Mogilev and Bobruisk. The early encirclement of these cities will allow us to cut off any chance of reinforcement. Once the fascists supply lines have been cut they will be slaughtered! This will also open up the rail lines across the front so that our glorious armies can be easily supplied or redeployed as necessary to meet the German counterattacks.

Once we have taken these strategic points we shall begin a pincer movement towards Minsk. Reports of heavy Tiger tanks mean that the most direct route towards Minsk is also the most heavily defended. We must also be careful not to get bogged down in the Pripyat marshes to the south.

It is imperative that we use our weight of numbers and engage the Germans as often as possible. We have far more support than the fascists and this will be our key to victory as in each battle, as we will be able to deploy more forces to crush them.

I await further instructions and will apprise you of any developments as they come to hand.
